    Ab Fab Rowing Machine!

    This rowing machine is the bees knees of home exercise equipment. I've been looking for a way to exercise that takes minimal effort (read: I don't need to put on a sports bra for this) while getting maximum output (read: sweating like a sinner in church). Here's a breakdown of the pros and cons.Pros:1. incredibly quiet. The actual rowing bit doesn't make any noise at all. What does make noise is the seat as it goes back and forth. The noise level is minimal and would be perfect for a living situation where rabble rousers would be discouraged.2. the footprint of the machine is minimal. When the seat bit is folded up, it barely takes up any space. I leave mine unfolded because I have the space for it, but if you wanted to keep it's square footage to a minimum, this would certainly beat out the floor space of an elliptical (snooze-machine) or a treadmill.3. you get a serious workout. Like serious. After 10 minutes of moderate effort on level 2, I was... 5/5 L. Rollins (New York, NY) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Nice rower with nice resistance....but dat display tho

    If one were to rate the machine for is mechanical properties ( as most machines are rated ) then this guy would get at least 10 stars easy. Its no Concept 2 but it costs a third of the price and offers some pretty nice resistance. The assembly is ridiculously easy but I work for IKEA so following instructions isn't even a problem; however, I will give them credit for separating the bags of parts based on the steps they go with. The machine folds up rather well and it takes up as much space as the bike I use on a trainer. Why give it a 3? Well....as far as price and function, the machine is super special awesome, but I must have drawn a frayed straw when I got my package in the mail. The cool advertised display ( mine at least) , doesn't track any activity whatsoever. It constantly displays "STOP" as if one isn't using it...even after multiple rows. I contacted the manufacture and they say it could be a bad sensor which the parts department may have spares for but we shall see... 5/5 Rex Blake - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    the magnetic resistance doesn't increase the fast you go like an air resistance goes so that might be an ...

    As the previous review mentioned, this is no Concept2 rower. I'll start with the negatives...The rollers for the seat are not as smooth. The nylon strap that works as the chain to pull the system has a very narrow gap to go though to avoid rubbing. I prefer to lean forward (from the back) when contracting while rower instead of sitting tall though the whole motion, this machine is to short that is causes me to return the handle all the way to the home position without being about to go any further for more range of motion. That being said, I am only 5'8" so a much taller person might not be able to lean forward much, if at all, if you rower in this fashion. This was my first magnetic resistance rower and if you have never used one before, just be warned their an odd feeling over air (I knew this before buying and you should research it yourself too). Finally, related to the resistance, the magnetic resistance doesn't increase the fast you go like an air resistance goes... 5/5 Jason - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    This machine may save my life

    I'm a former marathon runner who now has severe arthritic pain in both knees. Even walking long distances hurts. I transitioned to an elliptical machine, which was better, but still leaves me with some pain as there is still some weight bearing. I'd stopped exercising for the last few years, and have watched my weight balloon and my health start to decline. I'm so out of shape that housework and even climbing a flight of stair leaves me out of breath. I'm about 5'10" and a depressing 280 pounds of flab. So I'm basically starting from zero. I've talked to my doctor and orthopedist - both of which suggested swimming as an aerobic activity which won't stress my knees. No pool close to me so not an option. I found this machine by accident and was convinced by all the stellar reviews to try this. So here are my first impressions.Amazon had this delivered in two days via UPS. Came in a strong secure box, well packed with large pieces of Styrofoam.UPS brought this... 5/5 BeagleGuy (New Jersey) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Concept2 Model D has advantages over BodyCraft VR500

    After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower. Now I am very glad I did.I was comparing the following machines* Concept2 Model D ($900)* Concept2's Model E ($1100) which is higher off the groundand probably Concept2's strongest competitor on quality (but not price)...* BodyCraft VR500 (listed for $1900, usually on sale for $1500-1600)Also high off the ground like the Model E, and with a long monorail (both Concept2 models D and E also have an available longer monorail, for people with inseams of 38 inches/96.5cm or longer)I tested the Concept2 at my local YMCA before buying it (Concept2's website shows a listing of YMCA's with a Concept2 in your zip code). I also tested the BodyCraft VR500 at my local 2nd Wind Exercise Equipment store.I purchased the Polar H7 heart-rate monitor to work with the Concept2 , and the RowPro Software for the Concept2 after trialing it for 3 weekends... 5/5 Mark (Minneapolis, MN) - See all my reviews This review is from: Concept2 Model D Indoor Rowing Machine with PM5 (Sports) After much research I bought the Concept2 Model D rower.

    Amazing.

    I resisted all the black Friday deals on rowers and bought this one based on the positive reviews. I'm glad I did. Amazon shipped it to me in 2 days. Comes in a large box that weighs about 60 lbs. Very well packaged. Puts together with just 8 bolts. All the tools are included. Took 5 minutes.Despite the positive reviews, this item exceeded my expectations. The machine is extraordinarily solid. No wiggles or give what so ever. Just unbelievable for a 55 lb machine. The rowing motion is great. Clutch uptake is without slack. The slide is smooth. There are complaints about the seat being too hard. I though that the seat was hard plastic, but it's very firm rubber. There is cushion, and I didn't have any problems at all. I bought a gel cushion, but don't find that I need it.I was a bit worried about noise since my machine is in a hard room. But there is not much noise. I'm able to hear the TV from across the room.Overall, this is one... 5/5 Larkspur (Colorado Springs, CO) - See all my reviews, December 4, 2014

    Simple, effective and reasonably robust but has a flaw

    I was pleasantly surprised and excited when this rowing machine first arrived. It was well packed and the frame, supports and track were of reasonable gauge steel. I tried it out and after 5 minutes of use I was hearing a click and feeling a notch each time I took a stroke. The click was coming from the area of the piston where a metal pin secures the piston to the handle. I removed the pin and saw that it was damaged. I did not see any damage when I first installed it. There were two grooves and some marks on the pin from where it was rubbing on the frame (metal on metal). The pin is made from soft metal and if it can be grooved after 5 minutes of use I can't imagine that it's going to last very long. Also, the Amazon product description includes "Adjustable foot straps." I did not receive any foot straps. It's possible that Amazon made a mistake and the machine does not come with foot straps because I don't see any in the product picture.It is disappointing to get a new... 3/5 Pughimag (Hampstead, NC United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    The greatest at any price!

    FedEx just delivered my Sunny Health and Fitness Rowing Machine which was shipped in an excellent outer box with absolutely no holes or rips in it! The rower is completely assembled except for the handle bars which bolted on quickly with the enclosed wrench and 2 big bolts. I installed the console which was a simple slide on affair with a simple wire plug in. I never use consoles but I installed it anyway....it came with batteries included! There were no straps to hold the feet on an NONE ARE NEEDED!The seat isn't the best in the world but solid and glides easily and smoothly. I might add a small cushion for longer sessions. The hydraulic piston adjusts easily and goes from real easy to real difficult. So far I am estatic about my rower, but time will tell if I remain so. Am 86 years old and after a few minutes on the 2nd setting, I can feel the muscles in my thighs complaining, which is proof positive that the rower is doing the job it is intended for... 5/5 Melvin H.

    Exactly as expected

    Pros:CheapLight weight (20ish lbs and can be comfortably carried in one hand when grasped in the middle.)Simple sturdy construction (i cannot foresee anything braking without excessive misuse i.e. using it as a weapon)Stupidly simple assembly: (connected the resistance cylinder to the handle bars with the quick release pin; 2 bolts to attach the handle grips (tool included); plugged in the computer and slide it on to the handle bars; and extend and lock the back feet with the over-sized hand screw. DONE! takes maybe 5 to 10 minutes.Folds flat for easy storage under a bed or leaning in the corner of a closetCons:Limited range of motion:If you are looking for a machine with full range of motion then this is probably not for you. Fully extended the handle bars come to about my belly button level. It gets the job done but it doesn't necessarily work my arms much.
